Nice to know! ;)

mmh, I meant TReader and TWriter, the stream classes descendants of TFiler.

I could explain better later, with some code.
Anyway I noted that fpc use a smarter strategy than delphi: instead of an 
internal TStream fpc use a "Driver", an internal object delegated to all 
read/write operations.
I'm not sure how could it made compatible with IO needs.

Yes, I agree.
Maybe there were some minor issues with text too anyway (like cr/lf or 
floating point formats).
